Amid rising speculations, Ekta Kapoor has finally released the first look and teaser promo of her new Star Plus serial Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, which will be a remake of the hit original aired on the same channel in the early 2000s.
Since the announcement, there had been a buzz about who will be playing Prerna, Anurag Basu and Komolika in the remake. The roles were played by Shweta Tiwari, Cezanne Khan and Urvashi Dholakia, respectively, in the original.
There were reports that Yeh Rishta Kya Khelta Hai actress Hina Khan might play Komolika, though there has been no confirmation from her side. Bigg Boss 11 winner Shilpa Shinde, who had been seen to be at loggerheads with Hina since Day One at Bigg Boss house, responded to the speculation.
“Wasn’t she the Komolika of Bigg Boss 11 already?” Shilpa said while speaking to The Times of India.
She added, “Well, she is a good actress and playing a negative role shouldn’t be difficult for her. So yes she will essay the role well. The comedy was difficult for her but otherwise, she is good.”
This is not the first time that television actresses have taken a dig at each other.
On the other hand, Hina Khan was facing some tough time as she had been accused for not returning Rs 11 lakh jewellery. However, Hina has categorically denied the charge and also slammed a legal notice on the jewellery brand.
